MessageGreetings, from Sidney Montana. I am so excited to learn of the history of the Wends. I have just discovered this rich heritage and resources available here. I've always wondered about my ancestral history, but I never dreamed it might possibly be this rich.

I grew up on a farm in rural Minnesota. My grandmother is a genealogist and has traced both my mother's and father's family back to Pomerania, Prussia. During my undergraduate studies in theology and church ministry at Concordia, St. Paul, I spent 9 months on internship in Dallas, Texas. One weekend, I visited Austin and attended St. Paul's Lutheran Church, which has connections to the Texas Wends. I came so close to discovering the Wendish History, but at this time I had no idea of this rich heritage that I might have claim to. But I am glad to now have the opportunity to explore this heritage.

I have some work to do before I officially lay claim to the Wendish Heritage, but I will certainly use these resources to learn what I can. I'm sure I am experiencing the excitement that others have had in learning of this rich history.

MessageMy great-great-great grandmother and children left their home near Cottbus in 1850 to make a perilous sea voyage to South Australia. I've discovered what remarkable people my ancestors were and what a significant contribution they made to Australia's development.
